Really incredible set list for that Second Set - Not the most succesful revival of Cryptical, the lyrics seem to be just beyond jerry's reach and the tune never really catches Fire - This is probally the best of the bunch.

The first breakout at the Greek seemed pretty well done, don’t you think? The fact alone that they played this again was so tremendous, still fills me with joy and wonder today.

I heartily 2nd those emotions!

I got to see 6.24 & 6.30, & had close friends at the others. After the single occurrence Darkstar from the Greek in '84 & the '85 Greeks being The 20th anniversary shows, I didn't think it possible that they would play Cryptical again. The Cinci Comes a Time caught us all off guard (crypt>drumspace>CaT>O1>Cryptical). MWP's was my 1st front row show (2nd set only, that is) & I hope you all know of that set (& know it well).

Thanks for the reminder to listen to that Starlight '85 again (though I like '82 better: it's one of my favorite 'wish-I-were-there' shows).

BTW I'm listening to the DDP10 April 15, 1970 as I write this....

I attended 6/30/85 as well. But I certainly dont get what all the hype is about. Cryptical was very poorly played in 1985. They should have left well enough alone and kept the song retired. The '85 renditions are a travesty compared to 1968-1972 performances of the song...

Don't you mean 1971...(~9/23/72~)
But I was only 9 in 1971...& a rural TN lad at that
I *agree with you* that'85 ones were a stretch perhaps, but they *were* stertching & I got to see a couple of them.

Peace & Love Brother

heck it's one of the few tunes he wrote, figure he had a shot at the words. I agree they should've left the # of crypticals at 140

Not sure it matters a heck of a lot - you say 140, and by your wordage I assume that excludes the five in 85, but I can only account for between 120 and 133 all told in my admittedly quick research.. Regardless, I’ll just try to say it again - when you like a band as much as we do ours, what reason is there to complain that they tried something? Maybe my “perspective” is tainted by the thrill of having been there, but that summer tour in 1985 was so magical, fun filled and rewarding to me – and just to be clear, I mean all that with regards to the music I heard played and danced to.

Someone mentioned a bumper sticker “Jerry Me” the other day. As maligned as this tour has been, I felt the fruition of that sticker’s concept at every show; flubs, Healy fidgeting, warts and all. I’ll give it a rest now, but those who know what I am saying are lucky, and everyone else, I love you, even if you think I’m nuts.
